Best Places to Live in Los Angeles: Playa Vista

By August 20, 2018Los Angeles
Playa Vista

In 2002 the Westside of L.A. began a metamorphosis – the building of a planned community with residential, commercial, entertainment and retail stores named Playa Vista. This community has become a choice address for businesses in technology, media and entertainment and, along with Santa Monica and Venice, has become known as Silicon Beach. This is where a tech hub, open space, recreation, entertainment, shopping, dining and new home and apartment communities in Playa Vista are all just a walk away.

Playa Vista was also constructed as a model for green development using energy saving systems, non-toxic and recycled materials, product selections and design techniques that promote conservation. Part of that effort includes the Playa Vista Daily Shuttle which stops throughout the community, so you can head to Runway for dinner and drinks. Additionally the Beach Shuttle is now running every Friday through Sunday, which stops at Fisherman’s Village, Mother’s Beach and Venice Pier.

Playa Vista is also home to 29 parks, with lush green spaces, dog parks, sports fields, and neighborhood gardens.

Playa Vista’s ultramodern LA branch library is a community resource for books, events, lectures and discussions.

Where to Work

Home to some of the biggest names in tech, what was once the site of the iconic Howard Hughes’ aerospace company is now the address of choice for residents and industry giants including Google, Facebook, YouTube LA and many more.
